About this workshop

The only way to really learn design is by doing!

Get your design project kick-started with a working session to bring your creative ideas to life. First we'll review the fundamentals so you have the background to get started. Then we'll launch into hands-on practice where you can work on your own projects. You can bring the website you want to get off the ground, a piece of marketing collateral, or whatever you desire (and if you don't have a project, there will be a class exercise you can use). You'll get valuable critique from your instructor and your peers so you can continue to iterate and improve your work.

Topics to be covered will include: color theory, layout, graphics, typography, printing, and more. You can use Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, Squarespace, Wix, or Keynote. Whatever platform you are most comfortable using is ideal.
